    One doesn't have to be extremely efficient to apply paint.
    As you have seen, all we used to apply it, was a stick.
    We are just making dots! What else do we need really?


    But one just has to be effective enough to do it step by step without adding or taking any step away:


    Stir the paint, dip the stick inside the vial, steady your hand, drop/place the bead of paint, move away, done. Repeat as needed.
    Simple enough.


    Think about it: Efficiency and effectiveness are two absolutely different things, right?
    I can have enough efficiency for lots of things, but that doesn't imply that I am effective at everything, all the time.


    Two aspects of our world which apply to every procedure:
    At a human personal level...
    One static, there is efficiency in everyone. As in 'everyone can do it'. I can be efficient enough to do lots of things
    One dynamic, some individuals will prove to be more effective at some things than others.




    Anyways, enough of weird concepts....
    Next time we are going to remove the AQUA product and apply Glow-On Original..
    That is if we can manage to be effective and perform all the tasks cued in our schedule, lol...
    'Til then.

    At this point, if you are visiting this great forum for the first time or seeing us for the first time.


    Glow-On Super Phosphorescent is concentrated glow paint for firearm sights and other small projects.


    For more info visit:


    Glow-On


    If you own any type of firearm with plain iron sights or white dots.
    If your firearms are retrofitted with battery operated red dots or lasers and need a fallback strategy in case the batteries run out when you need them...


    This is for you.


    An affordable solution, for the cost of a fast food meal, a true do-it-yourself alternative.


    Here a very short video, just over 2 minutes:



    Thanks for your support, if this solution might help someone you might know, please share.

    Happy Saturday evening.


    We removed the AQUA from, the front sight on our pistol and we applied a couple of layers of Glow-On ORIGINAL.
    so that we have a: Aqua-Original-Aqua design.


    This is what we have then.
    Both the Aqua and Original Glow-On are white in the presence of light.
    The Original has a light yellow tinge.


    Since cameras work slightly differently than our human vision we try to use different light conditions to create a more rounded idea of the product and what it does.


    Again, a good LED tactical lamp is a necessity to operate in a dark environment.
    Always keep one next to your firearm, check the batteries often.

    Next thing.
    We are going to leave the Glow-On Original on the front sights and use every other color on the rear sights.
    Be safe everyone.


    Please share, thanks.

    Happy Tuesday.
    Before we close this post.
    Here we have several color combinations where the only variable is the color on the rear sights, the front sights remain Glow-On Original on each example.


    Let's start with Yellow, as always several light conditions:

    Glow-On adds efficiency to your gun sights, Glow-On can be combined with other alternatives and used as a fallback strategy.


    If you own firearms with plain iron sights or standard white dots and your budget has other priorities, Glow-On is for you.


    ---------------------------------------------------


    Moving on, Orange on the rear and Glow-On Original on the front sights.
    all we need to apply the product is the little wooden applicator.
    Stir the paint, load a bead of paint and deposit it, repeat, wipe it off.


    A small vial and the applicator.
    simple solutions are always better.

    Next, Glow-On RED on the rear sights and Glow-On Original on the front.









    A tip for "seeing in the dark"
    When you are in a dark environment, never look at things directly, direct your vision slightly to one side, in darkness, peripheral vision is enhanced to detect contrast.


    The proof: when you look a star directly, it will disappear.

    Wednesday, November 1st, 2017.
    Next is Hot Pink.
    We've left the front sight untouched with the Glow-On original and replaced the blue with Hot Pink.


    Hot Pink is really a Magenta or Process Red as it is known in the world of printing, a basic color.


    Glow-On is the only US Brand to offer this options today.
    for more info please visit:

    Now we have a Green-original-Green design.
    In other words Green Glow-On on the rear sights and Original Glow-On on the front.


    Different light conditions.

    Green is a cool color.
    More pics, a different perspective.
    Every perception relies on perspective, right?


    Remember the front is Glow-On Original, a white color with a yellowish tinge and green glow.
    Glow-On Original has a brighter glow than green.

    Holy mackerel....
    Don't you guys feel sometimes like the week came and went so fast, it feels like it just ran you over and left you wondering what the hell happened?...
    Did someone take the license plate number?!


    What in the world happened to Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday?
    Where did they go?
    Anyways what's gone is gone.


    Anyways here's the Yellow on the rear with Glow-On Original on the front.
